Tasting notes: This red Chorey is rich in character. Well structured, its tannins are present and elegant. This Chorey Les Beaune does not lack roundness under a solid framework, leaving the palate a fruity feeling.
About the winery: The Domaine Arnoux estate is comprised of 20ha of vineyards in the villages of Beaune, Chorey, Savigny, Pernand-Vergelesse, Aloxe-Corton, and Corton Grand Cru, producing approximately 8,000 cases a year. Committed to the land and vines, Pascal tirelessly works the soil multiple times a year. Each fall, winter, and spring, tilling is performed for aeration and in May, the base of each vine is hoed by hand to remove the superficial roots. In the winery, Pascal favors freshness over a big structure. With his father as a cooper, Pascal became an expert in barrel selection, though there is very little new oak in the cellar. As a result, the wines reflect the delicate and floral aromas of their terroir, with only subtle influences from oak.
